Police investigate as workers clean up chemical spill in South Brunswick

Workers continue to clean up more than 8,000 gallons of chemicals that leaked in South Brunswick over the weekend. An unusual smell alerted officials to the leak at the John C. Dolph Chemical Company on Saturday. Two flammable chemicals had spilled on the ground and some ended up in Lawrence Brook and a sewer system. The chemicals are used to make resins that are used in thermal and electrical systems. South Brunswick police say they are concerned about the environmental impact. Authorities don't know what caused the spill. The New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice joined the investigation, but police won't say if it was a criminal act.
